Brand highlight: Savant Apothecary


Low tox and low waste natural skincare

Australian made in store.

〰️ Based in Newcastle and handmade literally in store, this natural low tox and low waste brands products have become a staple in my beauty cabinet. The owner and apothecarist Kylie is incredibly knowledgable and passionate about skincare.


My top products are the milky cleanser, oh my gosh it smells incredible! Milky cleansers don't dry out your skin so you avoid that tight skin feeling that many gel cleansers can give you. Made with apricot and camelia oil blended with aloe vera gel and rose water among many other things, this cleanser will sooth your skin.⠀⠀

I also love the 3 acids serum which is made from fruit and basically disintegrates the top dead layer of your skin. I use it every couple of weeks (pick what’s right for you and your skin type) to keep mins looking fresh and dewy.


If you can't get to either of their Newcastle stores to sample their products then they have two discovery packs available online. I started with the discovery pack two and found my favourites from there.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love this brand anymore, I found out that you can return an empty jar or bottle to have it refilled AND save yourself money for doing so.


I love brands that are doing the right thing by packaging in a glass, using as little plastic as possible and encouraging a reduction of waste.
